Storyline

Armed robbers take cash from a department store, but they are killed or fatally wounded in their escape. A dying thief stashes a valise with a million Euros in the old car of Julia, a single parent who dances at a Barcelona peep show. She decides to keep the cash, but her suspicious babysitter tips off a nasty private investigator hired by the store's security firm to recover the cash. Julia manages to fight off the private eye the first time he confronts her, and she bolts with her daughter after asking a neighborhood bar owner for aid. He's Luis, quiet and helpful; he takes her to his mother's house in a small town. Can Julia evade the various bad apples on her trail? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A good suspenseful story!
3 June 2005 | by rosa_rameraSee all my reviews

An armed robbery takes place in an important mall in Barcelona. Julia (Maribel Verdú) is a young single mother working as a dancer at a striptease club. One night she finds in her own car a dead man with a bag containing one million euros. She understands immediately that the money is obviously from a criminal source. Nonetheless, she abandons the corpse and takes the bag. Concha (Olalla Escribano), her daughter's babysitter, suspects that Julia is involved in the crime, and reports to Antón (Antonio Federico), a private detective working for the insurance company owing the payment to the mall. Julia is localized and feels threatened by Antón, remaining deeply upset and worried and requesting help from a friend, Luis (Alex Brendemühl). Luis takes Julia and her daughter to his mother country home, hopefully a secure refuge. But Antón is convinced that Julia has the money and plans to kill her and steal the million euros. Things begin to complicate more and more, until a completely unexpected end. This is a good thriller, in which a in crescendo tension is maintained throughout the film. There are some brief but cruel killing scenes that could be avoided. Anyway, "Mar Rojo" ("Red Sea", in Spanish) is a good suspenseful story and I enjoyed it.
